2nd possession; 2 runs... the last was the fumble

3rd possession; 4 passes, 2 runs; last 4... run for -2, incomplete, incomplete, punt

4th possession; 3 passes... incomplete, sack -9, complete 6yards when we needed 17

5th possession; 4 runs, 1 pass; last 4 snaps were Foster for 5, Foster for 5, Foster for 1, pick 6

6th possession; sacked -10, Hopkins for 16, incomplete, punt
Great stats, but missing play breakdown. Link

1st drive: Tell me again we didn't come out in a shell? One pass followed by 4 straight runs (interrupted by a sack), followed by two incompletes on 3rd and 15 and 3rd and 10. (You don't get to count a sack as a pass btw.)

2nd drive: 2 runs, second was a fumble.

Sure, we opened it up AFTER the Seahawk FG, but not before.

Flip side: The drive @ 7:43 in the 4th, when you're trying to run clock? Incomplete, sack, complete, punt. Where were the runs to burn clock?

This is game management failure.
